WW1 propaganda :The Lusitania Medal

211_DSCF0504

I ve just uncovered , in a trunk in the loft, a superb example of a WW1 propaganda medal they were issued in their thousands to remind the British Empire of why they were fighting.

The medal came in a box and a  certificate inside reads……

An exact replica of the medal which was designed in Germany and distributed to commemorate the sinking of the Lusitania.

This indicates the true feeling the War Lords endeavor to stimulate, and is proof positive that such crimes are not merely regarded favourably, but are given every encouragement in the land of Kultur.
